Running Club provides a fun way to teach kids to keep moving in a positive atmosphere. It is held every Tuesday and Thursday during lunch recess on the playground.

EVERY student is enrolled! Just show up and run or walk. Students’ miles are tracked for the year with an app. Every 5 miles, students earn prizes.

Parents/Guardians are encouraged to come run with their child at recess!  Please sign in at the front office.

Volunteers Needed!  Come Coach our kids with us, we need your help!  Sign up for just one Tuesday, we would love your help!  The younger kids especially need help finding their cards at the beginning of recess.
